Portero-Rare-Bags

The eternal problem of luxury handbags is that the best pieces from the best brands always disappear in a heartbeat. When those pieces are also limited edition, the problem gets even worse. Hesitate for a second, and your perfect bag might be lost forever – but it doesn’t have to be.

Loewe Amazona Barroco Line

I’ve shared my love for Spanish brand Loewe before, and this love continues to grow. It’s frustrating not to be able to go see these bags in person like I can with many other designers, but in a way, that just helps my love grow – absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all.

Breast Cancer Awareness Accessories

October isn’t only the first full month of fall and the month of Halloween; in the US, it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, were cancer charities and brands team up to celebrate both breast cancer survivors and those who have lost their battles with the deadly disease.

Bergdorf Goodman 111th Anniversary Bags

For a department store like no other in the world, any ol’ anniversary celebration just doesn’t cut it. Where most companies might be tempted to celebrate 75 or 100 or 120 years in business, Bergdorf Goodman has saved up all its celebratory energy for a singular date befitting a singular store, and this year, its feting its 111th anniversary with a whole host of special goodies, all the way from special shopping bags to custom iPhone cases to limited edition bags, shoes and clothes from some of the world’s most sought-after designers.

Balenciaga Grace Coddington Pumpkin Bags

In case you hadn’t heard, Grace Coddington, the unsung hero of Vogue herself, is also the world’s most elegant cat lady. Step aside, Choupette Lagerfeld – Pumpkin Coddington is fashion’s new favorite cat, and he’s being feted by a capsule accessories collection from Balenciaga, in collaboration with his fabulous owner.

Miu Miu Matelasse Satchels

The start of the 2012 London Olympic Games is only days away, and for this year’s games, more designer brands than ever are pitching their hats into the ring to wish the athletes well and get a few of those sweet Olympic revenue dollars.

For a handbag collector, having a one-of-a-kind bag from your favorite brand is something you always hope to be able to do. Getting the opportunity, though, can be costly. Most major firms will make certain bespoke items for their VIP clients, but attaining that status requires a long history of major purchases before the privilege of buying such a bag is even granted, not to mention that the bags themselves usually cost well above the brand’s other pieces because of the costly process of producing a one-off design.

Well, this is strange. Or at least I think it is; you guys can be the final judge. To celebrate the global Fashion Weeks (which kick off today – everyone say a little prayer for me and my sanity) this season, Miu Miu is launching a grand total of 46 one-of-a-kind bags starting with 16 at the brand’s Prince Street boutique in New York.

I would love to bring more Loewe designs to our readers, but the brand remains hard to gather information from online. Never fear, PurseBlog always finds a way and today I am presenting the perfect spring collection. Meant to coincide with the Cherry Blossom blooms, Loewe introduces their limited-edition Cherry Blossom Collection which symbolizes the arrival of spring, good luck, and eternal love.

It’s not every day that I wake up and find photos of bags like the Lulu Guinness Fan Clutches waiting to greet me in my inbox, but every now and then, I get lucky and beautiful bags just appear. Yesterday was one of those days, and to make the whole thing even better, these clutches are here for a good cause.
